Thrift Thursday: Salvaged Embroidery

Another box from my grandma's house brought bits and pieces of stained and half-finished embroidery work. She probably collected most of them from yard sales. I washed and pressed all that I thought I could recycle into mail art. I created this card from a portion of an unfinished buffet set, adding old thread labels and some tape handmade from a vintage dictionary page.

I hope this card has a safe journey to Katerina in Greece.
